NOTE:

  • Many lab values contained in this deck can also be found on other Level Up RN decks when they are key to the material. This deck consolidates all of the nursing lab values into one place and provides a more comprehensive review for each value set.
  • Lab values vary slightly from one source to another. Therefore, your textbook or professor may have slightly different lab value ranges from the lab value ranges contained in this deck. Our cards are matte on back, so you can feel free to write in alternative ranges/values if necessary!
  • On Nursing exams, if you are given a lab value that is out-of-range, it will typically be VERY out-of-range. So, slight differences in expected lab value ranges should not impact your ability to recognize out-of-range lab values on exams.
  • All of our lab value ranges were cross-referenced against multiple nursing textbooks, .gov websites, and other peer-reviewed sources to bring you the most accurate and well-established ranges.

Also, make sure you get the most out of your Lab Values Flashcards by reviewing Cathy's advice on how to get the most out of them to pass your NCLEX and proctored ATI and HESI exams.
